Mine seems the same. The rear lip of the protective cover under the engine drops down slightly, perhaps by a couple of inches.

It is also floppy - made of a fairly thin material.

So, I’m guessing what you describe on yours is normal Odono.

Right I have pinned down noise 1. it only happens at 26 or 27mph (I know crazy) 2. much worse when engine cold noise seems to disappear when engine up to temp? I am pretty sure its the exhaust I know they made some changes to the later cars, anyway I drove round a crescent after 4th time noise seemed to disappear I have managed to use my phone to capture the noise but cannot download it :unsure: I have managed to post it on Kia Stingers owners club on facebook.

Could it be the hud frame vibrating? I had the same thing a couple of days after taking delivery. It would come and go and sounded like something rattling in the dash ahead of the steering wheel.

I solved it yesterday with a folded bit of black card wedged in the left side of the frame between the plastic and the glass.

Unfortunately it not a rattle, its a buffeting noise happens when engine cold normally, always at 27mph 28mph we think its coming from underneath car, possibly transmission tunnel dealers heard my tape, not a clue! no reports of any Stinger with this type of noise I've checked all forums I will find it, mechanic cant share car with me at moment :mad: back seats down boot stripped out just battery even louder, don't help 2020 exhaust so loud now :D

Update with noise none :mad: my next step is to rotate wheels in case balancing or a flat spot, don't trust tyre places so I will do it myself, anyone jacked their Stinger up if so where the best point I have a trolley jack and stands, while wheels off I'm going to clean properly and seal.

Right update took car in last Sat found one of the underpans catching on undersill sorted that, drove home, Mon morning car cold drove to work 27mph buffeting noise still there :mad: phoned dealer yesterday I asked if they would remove all the shields underneath so I could see in morning when cold if noise had gone, they weren't to happy to do that, after a discussion on phone I said remove them and I would sigh a disclaimer if I damaged the underside of car, not as if I'm driving off road, they agreed all shields removed yesterday drove home, this morning drove car 1st thing noise still there but 50% quieter :unsure: so what ever is causing the buffeting sound only does it when cold !! and the shields must be like a echo chamber so returning tomorrow to get shields refitted, they want to keep car but I'm reluctant to do that, not sure what next move is :mad:

Tricky one. Anything similar on the US forums to give you an idea?

I’d be getting tough on the dealer. ‘Sort it or provide me with another GTS!’

To be fare mate I have stopped them taking it in, I rather have this noise for 5mins in morning then rattles due to car being pulled apart, will see what they say tomorrow but they have been very good (y) ps nothing on the US forum.
